This book argues for an innovative approach to the systematic learning of metaphorical expressions, idioms and proverbs.Based on conceptual metaphor and image schema theory,a 4-level hierarchical framework is established,which originates from embodied experiences,and surfaces in linguistic expressions including metaphorical expressions,idioms,and proverbs.Because conceptual metaphors,image,and image schemas posess special cognitive features,it is claimed that they can facilitate the learning of linguistic expressions organized or motivated by them.Supports are identified from the following sources of evidence: The Dual Coding Theory,the Psychological Reality of Image Schema,and the Psychological Reality of Hierarchical Structure.The effectiveness of the current approach is experimentally explored and examined by means of five studies with the participation of four hundred plus Chinese undergraduate students.The present research represents an attempt to bridge the gap between the theoretical study of conceptual metaphors and image schemas in cognitive linguistics and their pedagogical applications in applied linguistics.
The ultimate objective of this book is to propose new methodologies for classification of synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images. There is a huge demand for classification of SAR images in military applications. In general, an analyst tries to use visual interpretation in SAR images to classify and identify the homogeneous group of elements that represents various regions like land, water, mountains and many others over a region of interest. These SAR images are different from traditional photographs and its visual interpretation is complicated. Hence there is a need to devise new strategies and methodologies for the classification of SAR images. The problem of classification can be categorized into two methods such as supervised and unsupervised. The unsupervised learning method requires optimization of metrics which often fail because most of the functions of these metrics employ local optimization methods which are non convex and irregular, so global methods are preferred to overcome this problem.

Heavily represented sections of contemporary philosophy subscribe to the notion of ´´embodiment´´. However promising this pragmatic turn of events may be, it remains limited in that it interprets the world as a projection of the cognizing ´´I´´. By contrast, Image Acts focuses on the counterforce of the form of images. The book subdivides this sphere into three parts: imitation, substitution, and the pure effect of the form. All three parts are contemplated with examples from antiquity through to the present and the iconoclastic controversies of our times. From this reconstruction of the image act springs the element of a new philosophy of affordance.Image Acts focuses on the counterforce of the form of images.

The history of images can be described as a history of technology and mediality. The development of images is deeply rooted in the potentials of media technologies and the numerous human inventions in the range of traditional craftsmanship, engineering science, computer science, and art and design. The factual embedding of images in the historical-technological processes constitutes a complex structure of an autonomous ´´image evolution´´ that must be highlighted, characterized and analyzed by the interdisciplinary academic discourses that are related to the functions and structures of visuality, pictoriality, and forms of multi-sensoric representations. The chosen term ´´evolution´´ is deliberately indicating structural laws that underlie historical events. These laws are intentional and logical processes of a historical and technological interdependency. In this interdependency, technology is evolving out of its inherent structures and additionally embedded in anthropological conditions and sociocultural dynamics. In this context, we should work with the concept of an ´´image evolution´´.
Presents a new anthropological theory on what pictures are and how they function in society, supported by case studies ranging from Dante´s picture theory to the relationship between image and death.
Now available in a new hardback edition, Michael Camille´s Image on the Edge explores that riotous realm of marginal art, so often explained away as mere decoration or zany doodles, where resistance to social constraints flourished.
Modern life is a sea of images. With so much visual data bombarding us-from personal devices to mass media-our brains must rapidly adapt to make sense of it all. Here to guide us is America´s premier intellectual provocateur, Camille Paglia. In these pages, Paglia returns to the subject that made her famous, situating our current visual environment within the epic scope of all of art history. With trademark audacity, Paglia tours through more than two dozen seminal paintings, sculptures, architectural styles, performance pieces, and digital art works that have transformed our world. Combining close analysis with historical context, she trains our eye to each image-from an Egyptian tomb to Jackson Pollock´s abstract Green Silver to Renée Cox´s daring performance piece Chillin´ with Liberty. And in her stunning conclusion, she declares the avant-garde tradition dead and film director George Lucas the world´s greatest living artist. Written with energy, erudition, and wit, Glittering Images will profoundly change the way we see.
